    I'd just buy it from somewhere...trust me it's not worth the frustration. But then again if you're as stubborn as I am you can always go with bondo or fiberglass

    If it's flat I would use aluminum. Just make a template out of wood, then rough cut the aluminum so it's just a little bigger than the template. Like 1/16 of an inch or so (close) double side sticky tape it to the template, and router away! Make sure it's on the template good, double sided sticky tape is your friend so use alot. Spray a little WD-40 when your routering on the bit to help lubricate. Just don't loose any fingers!!!

    You're right, bondo sucks. I worked well to fix the crack on my bumper, and it dries faster then fiberglass.

    I needed a flat piece to take up a slot in the radio hole after I installed my new head unit, so I went to radioshack and picked up a circuit board. Cut it with a rotary tool, and then sanded it to fit the spot. Then I layed a layer of fiberglass ontop of it, sanded, painted, and all done. It worked much easier then going from scratch.

    Thanks for the help. Maybe I'll try the bondo and fiberglass technique with the big piece of foam trick. I like that one alot. Thanks again
